I have two remembered usernames at, which is slow to load (third party resources load slowly until the page is fully loaded).  As soon as the logon page ( starts loading, I can double-click in the username field and select one of the two usernames from the dropdown suggestion field and have the username filled in while the page is still loading.  However, the password field remains blank until the page has finished loading, at which time the password is filled in.  This delays logging on with the remembered password until the page is fully loaded.  This is a variant of the fixed bug 221634 (password manager needs to fill in forms before the page finishes loading).  This fix has worked for me when there is a single username to autofill, but has not stopped the symptoms I have reported.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create two accounts at and have the password manager remember the passwords for both.
2. Try to logon at
3. Select one of the usernames from the userID auto-suggest field.
4. Wait for the password to be auto-filled.

Actual Results:  
Password field is autofilled only when the page has stopped loading.

Expected Results:  
Password field should be autofilled as soon as a username is selected.
